    Chickens are eating my Hostas - I am OK with them eating the Hostas, I just want to make sure that it is safe for them to ingest this particular plant?

    Mine also really like to eat Hosta, doesn't seem to bother them. They are usually listed as non-toxic and they are raised and parts (shoots) are eaten by people in some parts of the world, some lists do have the mature leaves as poisonous to dogs and cats / causing vomiting.
